Travel Photography by Gautam S Brahma

Being a travel freak, I love following some of my friends on facebook and fellow bloggers who are pro in the field of travel photography. One such person whom I got in touch with through the medium of blogging and photography, is Gautam S. Brahma. Gautam lives in Guwahati, Assam and works as a District MIS Manager with Govt of Assam. I have never met Gautam in person but there have been a lot of interactions on online social networks andΒ on our respective blogs, due to the common factors like Travel, Photography and Blogging. I recently approached Gautam for a guest post and I am glad, he accepted the request to write about his most recent travel and photography experience.

So here is what Gautam Brahma has to say about Travel Photography

I have been into photography since 2009. Despite the challenges involved, whenever I headed out to shoot landscapes, portraits or wildlife, the results have been encouraging. Like most people, even I love to travel and, to have a good time with my near and dear ones. I love to capture the moments with them and share those with others. These are mostly captured through mobile phone, point & shoot camera or a DSLR. For me, travel photography has always been fascinating. It was a hobby in the initial stages that has now turned into a passion. It’s something that still keeps my spirits high to explore newer places and to know more about the people living there. So for me travel is a chance to experience life and to treasure some of the moments of life through photography.

When it comes to travel, my favorite destinations are many. However in this post, I would love to speak about the North-eastern region of India. Northeast India has a lot to offer for someone like me who’s looking to relax and spend some quality time with family and friends amidst the scenic beauty of the lush green mountains, forests and national parks. If I get into the wish list zone, the one place with most amazing landscapes that I consider as a paradise for photography enthusiasts is “Iceland”.

My favorite travel destination so far is Majuli. It’s a river island in Assam, a state in northeastern India. Majuli has been the cultural capital of Assamese civilization since the 16th century. As such, it has been mentioned in the records describing the visit of Srimanta Sankardev.

You can get to see the Satras (monasteries) everywhereΒ in Majuli and if you happen to visit these satras of majuli, I would recommend you take your time to know more about them. The Bhakats (monks) at the Satras would love to share a few words with you about their life, dedication and more if you would want to talk to them. I guess this explains how important Majuli is to us and why every Assamese residing in the northeast India and abroad has an emotional attachment to this place. I would definitely recommend Majuli to you if you ever happen to visit Assam.

In and around Assam there are a lot more places to see. However, if you have plans for a longer stay in northeastern India, then there are other places like Meghalaya, Arunachal Pradesh, Nagaland also. These are the neighboring states with Assam and I must tell you that these places have an abundance of scenic beauty to offer to every visitor.
